In alternative healthcare, there are plenty of options to promote well-being outside the traditional medical sphere. However, the health and wellness industry often takes a one-size-fits-all approach when addressing women's unique healthcare needs.

Gaia Herbs is excited to announce our new Menstrual Cycle Products, a portfolio of supplements formulated by women for women, to provide support throughout their lives.

Our Menstrual Cycle Products fills a notable gap in supplements tailored to address specific symptoms that challenge women specifically — the intricate physiological, hormonal, and emotional shifts that occur from post-adolescence to pre-menopause. 

A Powerful Combination of Supplements to Address Women’s Health Concerns 

In launching our Menstrual Cycle Products, Gaia Herbs now offers five new symptom-specific products that are unique in the supplement market. These products will join our existing herbal supplement portfolio that includes supplements formulated specifically for women.

1. Cramp Relief

At least 80 percent of women experience cramps at some point. Cramp Relief, a formulation that blends White Peony Root, Licorice Root, Fennel, and Turmeric Root, relieves occasional discomfort and cramps associated with menstrual cycles. 

White Peony Root, known as "Bai Shao" in traditional Chinese medicine, is known for its herbal antispasmodic properties.* It helps relax the uterus*.

In combination, these four herbs help relieve occasional cramps before and during your menstrual cycle so you can get on with your daily life. Cramp Relief can be taken as needed but is not for use during pregnancy or lactation.

2. Bloat Support

During the menstrual cycle, the body undergoes various hormonal shifts that can impact several bodily functions, including water retention and digestive processes, contributing to bloating. Many women have symptoms of bloating during their reproductive years.

Bloating can occur due to fluctuating hormone levels and digestive changes, leading to slower bowel movements or changes in gut bacteria composition. Some women, as they approach or go through menopause, experience changes in metabolism that influence how their bodies process and store fluids and nutrients. Both these issues can lead to abdominal discomfort and bloating. 

Gaia Herbs’ Bloat Support is a full-spectrum formula with Dandelion Leaf and Burdock Root, traditionally used to support the reduction of water retention and help with digestion, healthy bowel movements, and occasional belly bloat. It can be taken as needed, but not during pregnancy or lactation.

3. Cycle Support

A healthy hormone balance is required for regular menstrual cycles. Gaia Herbs created Cycle Support, a full-spectrum formula with Dandelion Root, Schisandra Berry, and Vitex Berry to support hormone balance and minimize menstrual symptoms.* 

Vitex Berry has been clinically shown to minimize Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) symptoms, including breast pain and is traditionally used to support healthy progesterone levels and normal menstrual cycle length. It should be taken daily and not be used if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.

4. Cycle Serenity

For all the women who experience mood swings during their menstrual cycles — up to 64 percent of all womenREF#2971 — Cycle Serenity was formulated to support a healthy mood throughout your cycle. It combines Saffron, Turmeric, Fenugreek, and Hawthorn.

Saffron has been clinically studied and found to support a positive mood, and Fenugreek helps support hormonal balance. The combination also supports a healthy heart and healthy brain function.* Cycle Serenity is recommended for daily use. It is not for use during pregnancy or lactation.

The new products in our Menstrual Cycle Products provide women with a more nuanced and stage-specific approach to support their unique health challenges and keep thriving in good physical, mental, and emotional health.

The Gaia Herbs Difference

Gaia Herbs offers highly efficacious products that provide a natural approach to addressing a wide range of health concerns.

We are the only medicinal herb manufacturer that assures you of our products' purity, integrity, and potency. Most of our herbs and botanicals are grown on our 350-acre Certified Organic farm in Brevard, North Carolina. What we can’t grow here, we source from organic farms worldwide, based on each plant's ideal growing conditions.

We save seeds from each prior harvest and start new plants in our 60,000-square-foot greenhouse. Every herb is screened and validated in our on-site ISO Laboratory to ensure they meet Purity & Potency standards. We then use DNA testing to verify that what is written on the label is what is in the bottle, every time. You can view these testing results online on the Meet Your Herbs web page. 

Gaia Herbs is a Certified B Corporation®, actively working to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. We work to adapt and mitigate climate change in every aspect of our operations.
